The year is now 2016 and members of The American Legion and VFW in Greendale, Wisconsin made a very strong commitment to greatness. After years of critical planning, they have now begun the initial stages of erecting a Veterans Memorial in the Village of Greendale. Past, present and future veterans of the Village will be honored here. So will the veterans who are members of the American Legion and VFW located in Greendale. Some truly important facts about this dedication to our veterans has already made history. First, 89 year old Harold Krueger, member of the Legion Post, hand drew several versions of the structure. Each piece was very intricately designed. He made small scale models for better visual appearance until one was finally accepted by the Greendale Veterans Memorial Committee. After working with the Village Board, the memorial now will find its place on a nearby plot of land where passersby may see the pride and patriotic beauty of Greendale. It will include a sheltered kiosk containing a computer for visitors to look up and print out information about their friends and loved ones who are honored there. The area will be beautiful with complementing green space, shrubs and flowers. The village is known for its manicured appearance and plenty of pretty scenery. Visitors will soon add this to their list of stops when they come from miles around to enjoy the streets of old with antique street lamps, inviting little family-owned shops, restaurants and colorful flowers. We almost can't wait to see it all.
A special thank you goes to the Greendale Veterans Memorial Committee for all their hard work. These committed individuals are constantly creating new memories and a legacy that will live on. This truly is history in the making.
